We boarded the Estrella Blanca bus about 2:30, noting it was first class, but not luxury class like the Parihuni bus we rode last year. It had a few hanging TV screens and showed a couple of movies during the trip in Spanish as would be expected. We mostly dozed and I read and dozed as we passed through small village after small village, often right on the cost line.
The highway is strictly 2 lanes, not even a shoulder and the bus moves fast even on the curves.
We arrive in Acapulco about 6 pm, catch a cab and head for the beautiful Los Flamingos hotel, former playland of the rich and famous hollywood stars of bygone days. We get settled in our room and head to the dinning terrace for dinner and to catch the sunset. I had baby shark peccadilloes and onion soup, which was excellent, the Senor choose a pork chop that was a little tough. We watched the sun set visited with other dinners from Minnesota and watched as the waiter prepared bananas flambe, one more drink and we retreated to our room for the night.
The room has ventilator windows on both sides and a ceiling fan. No need for air conditioning as we are situated right on the cliff above the ocean and the breeze blows right through the room while you listen to the waves lapping at the rocks at the bottom of the cliff. Not a fancy room, but attractive and comfortable. This morning as I sit on the veranda right out side our door this is my view.
